Bungo-ōno (豊後大野市, Bungo-ōno-shi) is a city located in Ōita Prefecture, Japan.

The modern city of Bungo-ōno was established on March 31, 2005, from the merger between the towns of Asaji, Inukai, Mie, Ogata and Ōno, and the villages of Chitose and Kiyokawa (all from Ōno District).

As of March 1, 2017, the city has an estimated population of 35,811 and a population density of 59 persons per km².[1] The total area is 603.36 km².

In 2012, the growing deer population began to greatly affect the shiitake mushroom farming industry.[2]
